Looking every bit like the guy who pitched his way onto the roster this spring, Bartolo Colon made his first Major League start since July of 2009 and lifted the Yankees to a 6-2 win against the Blue Jays. Colon seemed to run out of gas late, but he pitched into the seventh inning — something not many Yankees starters have done this season — and was charged with two runs while striking out seven. Between a second-inning home run and a sixth-inning single, Colon retired 12 in a row, seven on strikeouts. To lead the offense, Mark Teixeira had three doubles, Curtis Granderson hit his sixth home run and Russell Martin was 2-for-3.
